Rogue Power Drifter launched in Ecuador

I just received this note and these pictures:

Mr. Jeff Spira,

My name is Olguer Heras, I am from Ecuador, I did a lot search on the internet I found a lot of boat plans but did not fill my expectations, until I found your plans.

I decided to build the Rogue Power Drifter, because I am very close to the jungle and the rain forest and we have some white water rivers. It was fun to build. I take a couple of months to finish, but it was worth it.

Thanks, Mister Spira.

I sent you some photos, too. I hope you enjoy it.

Best regards,

Olguer Heras

Why, yes, I really do enjoy seeing pictures like yours. It looks like you did an excellent job on this boat and I hope you have lots of fun using it in your rivers.

More info on the boat, free study prints, and links to purchase plans are available here: 16' Rogue Power Drifter Boat Plans.

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.

I believe in offering you all the information you need to learn more about how to build a boat. That's why I offer free videos, free ebooks, and free reports. There's even some free plans available to isiders and some seminars I've delivered. To join, just click below:
